I've been making my way through each show from '77 and just got through this one. I'm surprised it isn't considered one of the top shows of the year. It's a real underrated gem. Sound quality is excellent too. Check it out if you haven't yet.

Subject: anyone notice the bass line in Jack Straw?
Does anyone else notice the bass line towards the latter half of Jack Straw? Either coming from phil or the keyboards but it's really unique.

great recording and really picks up the feel of that period.

Subject: Terrapin jam shines here.
I was never a big Terrapin fan until I heard this one. Such a complex and deeply entrancing song.
The whole set 2 jam from Terrapin>Estimated>Other One>Drums>Wharf Rat is just gorgeous.
I'll take any recommendations for other late 70s shows like this.

Excellent sound quality.
And those that complain about stream-only shows need to get over their desire to own things. Just my opinion.

Subject: A Hugely Underrated Show
This one is an outstanding show and recording. The boys have it together and they seriously rock the Motor City. A definite add!

"No labels" and "no track numbers" are not valid reasons for giving this show just one star, the lowest rating.

It's the music that counts and this is a five star show. OK, there are a couple of flaws e.g. start of "FOTD" cut and reel-lip in "Truckin'" but giving this one star is just plain ridiculous. I wish I could give it ten stars to cancel that out.

Also "stream only", if you believe that you'll believe anything ("you just have to dig around") and there's always Lossless Legs.

Get real njpg.
